, is that inheritable by somebody else, by a classic politician? can hillary clinton still get those voters? will people think that she is outside politics, outside of washington the way that people think of barack obama, which is a wholly new thing. that is sui generis. >> i don't see it like that especially because the man himself is an island unto himself in washington, d.c. >> yes. >> he is not a democratic party boss like tip o'neill. he's not even really connected with the chicago political machine. >> and curiously, people like that. >> he is his own man. that's a great thing unless you are the democrats that want this to be passed along four years from now. >> but is there, in your view, a philosophical way of being that is inheritable, to use rick's word? is this pragmatic problem-solving approach that clinton began and obama has clearly taken through this four years, five years so far, is the next republican victor going to have to be someone who is less ideological than, say, 30 years ago? >> well, i take exception with the suggestion that barack obama has been pragmatic. he passed a lot of t

dollars in deficit spending last four years. president says let's go back to the clinton levels of taxation. if we went back to the clinton levels of taxation we're still double the highest bush era of deficit spending still because spending was accelerated so much in 2009 and 2010. we're trying to bring the spending levels back down. on the contrary if we just brought the spending levels down to the clinton level spending instead of tax level going up to clinton level of tax it is would solve this. we're trying to solve the debt and deficit. we're trying to say how do we get out of debt. the president is saying let's get past the fiscal cliff and let's keep moving on. that doesn't solve the problem. what solves the problem is reducing spending and get our spending back down so our nation is back in balance again. jon: is it mostly medicare and perhaps social security that are the drivers of the problem in your view? >> it is everything that's on the table. when you look at our discretionary spending, how much that was accelerated through the one-year stimulus program to be done
clinton had bill cohen. so he's getting hit from so many different sides. >> he's getting -- and he's getting hit from republicans. he's getting hit from every side. i think it was an obtuse choice. and what the white house has done in floating his name and then being m.i.a. so, yeah, chuck hagel's nomination is d.o.a., and in the meantime, the white house is m.i.a. he's got to work really, really hard to find a nominee who is offensive to democrat-based constituencies like gay advocates, like israel advocates, like environmentalists and who is also offensive to republicans. you really have to work hard to find that combination. >> i think that's a totally strong point. he has no one in his corner, basically, except the president. >> and you talked about bill cohen as secretary of defense. did you know bill cohen got nominated and approved, unanimously, by the u.s. senate? >> john kerry is liked by more republicans than this guy. >> chuck schumer won't support -- >> a very different time. but we've got a record of democratic presidents picking republicans to be secretary of defense,

in front of a train in new york. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton heads back to work next week. she was sidelined for almost three weeks due to a concussion. doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for several more weeks. >>> it's not over yet. another plast of snow is expected this weekend for parts of the country in addition to this. stretches of new england still digging out. this is the scene in maine where the governor made the call wednesday to close all state officers because of that snow. the strong wind and rain create a coastal flooding mess there. let's get the details from the weather channel's nick walker. whoa's going to get hid again? >> it looks like a break in some of those areas, but there is plenty back toward your west. that will be moving into the northeast as we head into your weekend, producing snow on top of that. it's pretty light here around chicago, milwaukee, toward the minneapolis area where we've seen a few airport delays simply due to icing and snow removal there. nothing 345i7b8g, but a lot of moisture is off to the south, produces thunderstorm
they refer to as systemic failures in the very department that is headed by hillary clinton. apparently the state department and, you read through this report, they were utterly clueless about the threats and dangers in libya. how much plame rests on the shoulders of hillary clinton? what do you want to hear from her when she finally testifies? >> well of course the blame is on the libyan terrorists and we don't want to minimize that but when it comes to the things we can control, our own government i think the state department and the obama administration as a whole must be made accountable. this was a terrorist attack that where four americans diplomats were murdered. gregg: should she want to know, should she have been involved in security? >> not only should she have known, i want to know why in the seven hours that this firefight took place why did this accountability review board not even interview hillary clinton? she was just presented with the report. at no time was she interviewed. gregg: yeah. >> what did she do during those seven hours? where was president obama during those

person over $250,000 who would be subject to clinton dasher are tax rates and we're told this is not a big deal. most seniors are not living particularly well. we have the data on that. roughly 40% rely on their social security check with averages over $1200 a month for 90% or more of their income. 70% rely on it for more than half their income so the idea of these high-living seniors, i don't need my check, that's fine. send it back. very few people like you, pete. this is a big deal. >> there's even a question as to why we're dealing with the social security problem. it's not part of the deficit anyway, except for the part that should be dealt with later on. >> i keep getting into this thing, it's semantics. it's not just part of the budget but the other part of the story is it's a program that overthe long reason faces a shortfall. i know how i want it resolved but at the end of the day we'll probably see some amount of benefit cuts and some amount of revenue increases, whatever you call it. if you have unilateral benefit cuts you've given away a large part of the stor
department did this go? did it reach the 7th floor of the state department, ie, hillary clinton's office. we don't know that. >> dave: and that's why people want to hear from secretary of state hillary clinton, and hopefully recover from the concussion, from the flu to give the answers. there were four americans who died. >> clayton: great point. >> we have other news for you, get to it, if you're just waking up, after a second round of voting it looks like egypt now has a new constitution. you can see supporters of president mohammed morsi casting ballots for the islamic drafted confusion and reports that the constitution had passed and morsi says it's establishing democracy in egypt, but the some say it's nothing more than a power grab. is a serial killer on the loose in michigan this morning, concerns after police made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they have found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas for dna testing and investigators want to determine if the remains match the body parts months ago
the teleprompter. newt gingrich. he said the republican party right now could not beat hillary clinton in 2016, but we're hearing the beginnings of the efforts to discredit her as a potential candidate. newt gingrich weighing in on hillary clinton. what about that one? >> is this going to come at the end of his second term with a moon colony? you know. newt gingrich coming to hillary clinton's defense, i suppose we shouldn't be surprised. i'm still going to have a head-wrenching moment because wasn't he the guy who had something to do with impeachment? it's nice that he's gone back to his olympian position of musing on the state of politics. he couldn't really predict his own politics in his own primary very well. it's true that people might try and throw rocks at her. i just think stepping out of the washington fray means that she doesn't need to deal with this right now. so in terms of her own position, it's not like she's a nominee. she has to deal with congress. she doesn't even -- she managed to dodge the whole situation on benghazi pretty well for herself. you know, the tougher questions

senator hillary clinton stopped by with her chief of staff to wish me a happy birthday the first year she was in the senate. it was just a few months after she hadrrived, and my staff was surprised -- and possibly a bit star-struck -- to see the former first lady walk into the room. we went on to work together in vital voices, a global partnership dedicated to supporting and empowering women leaders and social entrepreneurs in emerging economies. we alsoeamed up with senators mikulski and collins to assure public schools had the option to offer single-sex schools and classes. after i visited with secretary of education rod paige, the young women's leadership academy in the harlem area of new york city -- one of the fir and most successful pilot projects for girls puc public schools wih which i know the presiding officer is very familiar. anand the i remember the time i invited senator barbara mikulski to texas. because she has and i have worked together supporting nasa for so many years, and this year she chair and i am the ranking member of the subcommittee. we went to the space center b
